May At The Double As England Beat Wales In Six Nations

"I've not seen an exact transcription so I can't comment too much on the specifics but it was more important that World Rugby, when they were asked for clarification, came back and essentially said that they saw nothing untoward with what happened", Alun Wyn Jones told reporters at Wales's team hotel on Friday.

Only two minutes had passed when the centre was able to pick up a loose ball and demonstrate outstanding vision in finding winger Jonny May without a flawless kick for his first Six Nations try.

Wales coach Warren Gatland claims the decision to disallow a Gareth Anscombe touchdown in the 12-6 defeat by England was a "terrible mistake".

"I thought they (England) were very, very good in the air and dominated that aerial battle and as a result probably dominated a bit more territory and possession", Gatland said.

"It is a pivotal moment in the game".

"They fly a guy over from New Zealand to do a TMO, he has one big call to make and unfortunately he's made a bad mistake. And at this level I think that's pretty disappointing". "When he tried to stop the referee from allowing the kick at goal - we can't have that in the game", the former Wallabies coach said.

"The referee said "I can't hear you clearly" but he heard that he said "no try".

However, the 29-year-old - one of Wales' most experienced players - was confirmed as an absentee for the England game just over an hour before kick-off on Saturday, with a foot infection the reported reason for his withdrawal. "He's got time to make a decision, and if he can't make the right decision then what do we do?" You can not do anything about it.

"Well Mr Protheroe (his p.e teacher) is Welsh and I can't wait to see his face when we win!"

Wales have refused to be drawn into any verbal jousting after England boss Eddie Jones ramped up Saturday's Six Nations clash at Twickenham.

"I never thought it would be a routine win. He won't let Jones referee the game". "We've lost Dan Biggar and other guys".

It would be wrong to overlook Wales' industry - rewarded by a single Patchell penalty - particularly in the final 15 minutes of the first half but England's brutal tackling squeezed the visitors for room and backed up their effective finishing.

"You've just got to sometimes put up with unlucky decisions", Gatland said afterwards as he reminded of the incident involving North.

England had established a 12-0 lead before the incident in the 23rd minute.

May then latched on to a fine one-handed offload from Joe Launchbury midway through the opening half to double both his and England's tally.

But they failed to score again as inaccurate Wales grew increasingly into the contest and forged gaps in the home defence through the second half that should have yielded tries.
